THR has confirmed that David Thewlis (“Harry Potter” series) will be joining the upcoming sequel RED 2. He will be playing an information dealer known as ‘The Frog’ who got his name from poisoning the Kremlin in Russia with a frog.
Set to hit theaters on August 2, 2013, RED 2 features the return of Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Mary-Louise Parker and Helen Mirren with new roles for Catherine Zeta-Jones, Neal McDonough and Byung-Hun Lee.
The sequel is being directed by Dean Parisot with a screenplay from Erich and Jon Hoeber, who wrote the script for the original RED, based in turn on the comic book by Warren Ellis and Cully Hammer.
The film brings back the team of retired CIA operatives as they use their old-school style to take on a new set of enemies all across Europe.
